    I have searched and not been able to find exactly what I am looking for. Maybe I have been too impatient or overlooked the answer, so sorry in advance if that is the case.

    I have 10 hosted domains using the latest version of ISPConfig on Ubuntu 7.10. Everything is working well for external access, but I am unable to browse the sites internally since everything is behind a firewall. I am automatically redirected to the Shared IP site. I was hoping to check the site status by going to: http://192-server-ip/~sitename/index.html

    Thanks in advance.

    I know that it creates name based virtual hosts, but I was hoping there was a way I could accomplish this with a supplemental configuration or something.

    Thank you for your response though, and have a good one! :)

    You need a split DNS.

    Internally you will have:

    You can try this by added the lines above (with your domains and IP address) to your 'hosts' file on your windows xp computer. Then try the websites to your browser.
